A NEW €100,000 Mercedes has prompted a mini-flood of orders – before it even gets to Ireland.
The S-Class saloon, expected to cost from around the €100,000 mark, is due to be publicly unveiled here tomorrow.
Distributors here are 'guaranteed' 60 new models. But such is the level of demand, they will have to keep on asking for more.
It is another tangible sign of confidence returning to the economy – last year just six S-Class models were sold.
Now it appears senior executives are coming back to the market to buy a big luxury saloon.
